for the obama administration but republicans are in worst shape than they were back in january and i think that was reflected today. the president probably scored some political points when he talked about sequester and the lack o of any effort on the part of the other side to do any kind of grand bargain, he was muddled on syria as the policy is for, i think, rather understandable reasons, but it really was not what i would term any kind of a conclusive event, but that reflects the times. >> rose: chuck? >> yeah, i thought there was a lot of blame congress in there, when you take away the syria aspect, every issue that came across, he had a dig in there for congress, whether it was the sequester and the faa pick, even on implementing healthcare talking how congress is trying to stop him on healthcare, on guantanamo, an issue he hasn't been asked about a lot but with that hunger strike taking place down there is a lot of concern among a lot of people that something that one of these detainees could die and that could become a game change never that respect and again, he remined people cong

forging ahead. >>steve: while the pressure heats up on president obama to make a decision, gas prices remain high at $3.50 a gallon. let's talk to stuart varney. are they connected, the keystone and the high price at the pump? >> i think they're going to be connected. at the moment you've got an average price nationwide, $3.50 a gallon. this is gretchen's story. she coined the expression the new normal for gas. the normal keeps going up. we've got $3.50 now. i think we're headed towards $4 a gallon in the summer. as prices start to rise towards that magic level $4 a gallon -- in comes the debate over the pipeline. the president has to make a decision fairly soon: build it? yes or no. as he's making that decision, gas prices rise. i don't think the two are connected. if you build the pipeline, i don't think you get prices down tomorrow morning. but in the public's mind they are going to be linked. >>steve: do everything you can? >> yes. because as you get closer to $4 a gallon. it's a big deal in america, $4 gas. that precise moment, then you have the president who is discussing the pi
